So will Captain Amarinder Singh meet top leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Delhi? There is a lot of discussion in the media that Captain Singh will meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP National President JP Nadda in Delhi. There were also speculations that the Captain might join the BJP. But now the media advisor to the former CM has put an end to all these possibilities. Captain Amarinder Singh’s media advisor Raveen Thukral said, “There is a lot to read about Captain Amarinder’s visit to Delhi. He is on a personal journey. During this he will meet some of his friends and will also vacate Kapurthala House for the new CM of Punjab. There is no need for any unnecessary apprehensions.
Let us inform that Captain Amarinder Singh had resigned from the post of CM after a dispute with Navjot Singh Sidhu. Captain Amarinder Singh’s displeasure towards the Congress high command had also come to the fore after the resignation. When the Captain resigned from the post, there was no clear answer on not joining the BJP. The captain had said that all options are open. After his reply, many political analysts were speculating on their own behalf.
The Captain had said that he had to leave the Chief Minister’s chair in humiliation. After this he made a big attack on Sidhu. Describing Sidhu as an anti-national, he announced that he would not allow him to become the CM of Punjab. However, after the Captain left the chair, the Congress high command made Dalit face Charanjit Singh Channi the new CM of the state.
Here on Tuesday, another big news came from Punjab Congress. Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned from the post of Congress’s Punjab unit president. In a letter to Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Sidhu has said that he will continue to serve the party. Sidhu took over as the party’s state unit president in July this year.
He wrote in the letter, “The decline in the personality of any person begins with compromise, I cannot compromise on the future of Punjab and the agenda of the welfare of Punjab.” I resign from the post of State Congress Committee President. I will continue to serve Congress.
